nothing works

This is not my day/week or so. It feels like everything I touch or try to do, isn´t working. It is frustrating to start projects and than nothing really works out. Mostly it is not my fault, but it feels like --- Kjell

Ironman Coeur d´ Alene

Wow it is race day again. Including the time difference, I raced less than a week ago in South Korea. And the other fun thing is, I got the same race number #45. My shoulder and toe have seen better race mornings and I´m motivated and have allot respect for what is coming up. We start 35 Minutes earlier, what can and probably will be a nightmare for me ... Please keep your fingers crossed --- Kjell

colder and colder

I don´t know what´s going on, but the temperatures are not really what we expected and need for sunday. It is realy cold out there and I don´t wanna think about the race on sunday. I´m gonna freeze everything off. My shoulder and toe are there and they constantly let me know that they are there.
Well at least the Hottop works now. I´m sure I need it after the race --- Kjell
PS: Happy Birthday Max

bad luck ...

I guess. Well my racing recently was filled with great moments. The good side of it is, I learn allot. And we will see how this hard race will effect my Ironman next sunday. I´m probably losing my toenail and that will not be fun for sunday.
Yesterday, the water war cold (15,5C) and I had a terrible swim. Hurt my bad shoulder at the start and than getting on my bike was a struggle. After freezing for a couple km I warmed up enough to ride solid. I wanted to take it easy on the "flat" section, so I do not kill myself on the big climbing. That was not the right desicion. I lost quite some time and I came of the bike, after that hard climb with a OK feeling. Than starting the run it the fog (at 4500F elevation!!!) was allright. I started hard right away and made up quite some spots and did some for my CDA motivation. Finished in 5:29h (24th out of 600), I know not the greatest, oh well --- Kjell

South Korea

... is allways an experience: "South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK) (Korean: 대한민국, IPA: [tɛː.han.min.ɡuk̚]), listen (help·info)) and often referred to as Korea, is a country in East Asia, occupying the southern half of the Korean Peninsula. Also known as the "Land of the Morning Calm", it is neighbored by China to the west and Japan to the east, and borders North Korea to the north. Its capital is Seoul, the second largest metropolitan city in the world[3] and a major global city. South Korea lies in a temperate climate region with a predominantly mountainous terrain. Its territory covers a total area of 100,032 square kilometers and has a population of almost 50 million, making it one of the most densely populated regions in the world." [source: wikipedia] cheers from there --- Kjell
